Meet Dr Joyce Rached

It was July 5th, 2019 and the sun was out. The temperature was just right. The weather was perfect in Lebanon. It was the happiest day of our new optometrist’s life. She got married to the man of her dreams, in a traditional Lebanese wedding, surrounded by 450 of her closest family members and friends. Yes, 450. We’d like to introduce you to Dr. Joyce Rached!

Here is the beautiful bride and her handsome husband, Jabar.  This great couple has been together for 10 years – but married for less than a month. So, when you come to visit our Mansfield office, make sure to give her a big congratulations! And make sure you ask her about her traditional Lebanese wedding. It wasn’t a one-day event. It was a week-long celebration filled with family, fun, and spectacular traditions. One involves dough. Another involves coins. And a third involves the groom’s family STEALING THE BRIDE! She has plenty of stories to share with you.
